Looking forward to this tremendous read honoring a man of conviction.

bonhoefferToday is Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s birthday. Today I’m honoring his memory. How much do you know about this remarkable man? He was a courageous Christian pastor in Germany during the 1930s and 40s who resisted the Nazi attempt to take-over and apostasize the Church. Bonhoeffer was deeply committed to resisting evil, standing for the Truth, teaching the Word of God, preaching the Gospel, rescuing Jews. What’s more, he secretly discipled young pastors in Germany to do the same. One of Bonhoeffer’s most powerful books was, The Cost of Discipleship. I read it in college and it had a profound effect on me. April 1945, he was hanged for participating in a plot to assassinate Hitler. I’m currently reading Eric Metaxas’ riveting book, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, and highly recommend it. If you can go hear Eric speak during his 10-city “Bonhoeffer Tour,”I’d encourage you to do it. The tour begins this Friday.

    One of the most courageous and inspiring heroes in human history. And boy, do we need his example in these discouraging “hey, whatever” times.

      I am reading The Cost of Discipleship and if that doesn’t rock your world and your faith, nothing will. He is now one of my all time favorite authors and theologians. I had no idea who he was until I heard about him several months ago. The courage and faith of that man is amazing! He really gets to the crux of the problems with “organized religion” to which is so critical in these times! Thank you Mark:-)
